When we were house hunting I had a list of all the things I would really like the house to have. I was flexible and we made plenty of offers on houses the didn't quite make the list. I prayed about this list hoping to find a house that matched it. In the end we found it (except for the basement. But I guess we did get that, just unfinished and not attached to our house).
The reason I wanted irrigation is this...
And it is a great way to water fruit trees.
While they were out there William found a gecko.
He was very sweet and wouldn't run away from the kids. If we set him down he just stuck around.
I finally decided he must be dieing, but when we set him outside and left him and then went back to check on him, he was gone.
